I'm trying to set up and run a kernel (Windows XP)
fully virtualized, so far without success.
Here's the situation:
-- a fresh install of CentOS 5.3
-- an ISO image of the Windows installation CD
-- using /usr/bin/virt-install to create
  a disk image and xm configuration file,
  and to start the domain.

The result:

virDomainCreateLinux() failed POST operation failed: (xend.err 'Device 0 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.')

And "xm dmesg" reports:

hvm.c:1170:d0 Bad HVM op 8

What should I do to track down the source of this problem?
What does "Bad HVM op 8" mean?
